for a moment. near ago critical moment in washington as president obama gears up for a new round of talks with congressional leaders over the fiscal cliff. lawmakers are running out of time to strewniike a deal to av across the board spending cuts and major tax hikes. what will it take for both sides to reach a compromise. here is washington times columnist. >> let's start here. yesterday was small business saturday. should we fall off this fiscal cliff how would it effect the small businesses in this country? >> well, i think right now, ar they will. that's t -- arthel that's the big question. most have no idea what they are facing. if all of the bush tax cuts do expire as they are slated to do then small business owners would be looking at massive tax hikes across the boards. right now they are filling out their budgets for the following year doing something congress has not been able to do in years. but they are filling out their budget. if they think they are facing a huge tax hike, what they are going to do is they are not going to hire people. they are going to lay people off. we ha

an effort to do a principle compromise and mr. obama who doesn't face another election, and mr. boehner who is head of a party somewhat chastised in the past election about appearing not to let washington work. if we can have the bipartisan compromise not dissimilar to the simpson-bowles national debt commission where we understand it is going to take revenue enhancements as well as spending reductions and entitlement reform, we can do what's right. we must do what's right for america. i think we have a real opportunity to do it, probably a short team deal by 1 january, but the real negotiation will then be done before we break the real debt ceiling in the middle of march. >> clearly these folks aren't spending money just to spend money. they think they can have influence by influencing people to influence congress. are they right? >> well, they're trying to set the table. no question. i always challenge people to advertise in december. you can't out spend santa claus, and it is hard to get through a message now with the lame ducks folks in congress. i agree with the congressman. i think yo
ginnis is in washington with what republicans and democrats now say they are willing to do to reach a deal. >> reporter: president obama and congress begin negotiations this week to avoid are the coming fiscal cliff, about $6 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts that will kick in. both sides say they're looking for ways to compromise. >> that's what it's about, if regan and o'neill can do it, obama should be able to do it. >> reporter: but republicans have consistently voted against any deal that raises tax revenue. >> the key is whether or not the republicans will move away from the id logically rigid tradition which was the grove pledge that they will not go for additional revenue. >> reporter: for the first time the antitax pledge seems to be negotiable. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid the coming grief and republicans should put revenue on the table. >> reporter: but new revenue doesn't necessarily mean new taxes. >> i would be very much opposed to raising tax rates, but i believe we can close a lot of loopholes. >> reporter: and d
to washington. and now today to them it seems so close they can taste it. because although john kerry is still a senator from massachusetts, after his very high-profile role in the obama campaign and speaking gig at the democratic national convention, after that john kerry's name was put forward as one possibility, a leading possibility to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. that, of course, would result in him leaving his senate seat after all, which would mean there would be a temporary ae re placement appointed and then there would have to be another special election to fill the rest of his term where scott brown would be the republican nominee again. which would be the best chance of putting a republican in the senate any time soon. which is why republicans got so excited when john kerry's name was floated. his name was floated along with one other name for that job. republican senators were very, very quick to point out that they really prefer john kerry to be the nominee for secretary of state. a ringing endorsement for john kerry from republicans in washington. because if joh
obama won reelection. the president knows i'm the most reasonable and responsible guy in washington. you know in some ways john boehner has proven to be reasonable over the years. in june 2002 during george w. bush's first term in office, congressional republicans were faced with the issue of raising the nation's debt ceiling. that's the limit for how much the country can borrow to pay for things. no politician ever likes to raise the debt ceiling. nobody likes to think the country has to borrow money, but we do. so in june of 2002 when that vote came up, he voted yes. let's raise the debt ceiling. it's the responsible thing to do. november 2004, john boehner voted to do it again under president bush to raise the debt ceiling. april 2005 at the start of bush's second term, john boehner votes in favor of raising the debt ceiling. so matter how opposed you might be to borrowing money, however, distasteful it is to you, everybody realizes as long as we are borrowing money, not raising the debt ceiling would be a very irresponsible thing to do. it would be a disaster for the country. everybo
to the fiscal cliff. will a deal be done in time? today, president obama meets with small business leaders to make his case for the possibility of higher taxes ahead. our washington correspondent, john harwood, is here with the very latest. hi, john. >> reporter: hi, tyler. you know, everybody is staking out public positions and trying to drive public opinion their way. the president's been doing that all week. he is doing that with his meeting at 2:30 this afternoon with small business leaders from around the country. he is later going to travel to pennsylvania to make his case publicly, part of what he is saying is that if you adopt his plan on the extension of the bush tax cuts that is for the middle class and not for people at the top that almost every small business owner is going to get a tax cut as a result of that. and republicans are staking out their own position that tax revenue can go up but not tax rates. once they get into the room and the hard bargaining which of the positions ultimately falls away. the signs remain positive, tyler, we will get a deal by the end of the year.

the editorial page editor for the washington examiner joining us now from the nation's capital. is now a good time to let them expire? >> there really is no good solution now. this has been handled so poorly since the beginning of the obama stimulus package. when benefits were extended, and this was 99 weeks, that is such a long time to lengthen benefits. you put people in a position where they will keep looking and hold out for jobs that are way better than anything that is available. in this economy right now, there is nothing decent available. especially people in the age 25 to 54 age bracket. they are not getting any jobs back that they lost in the crash. although growth is an old people. so, you know, you put a whole generation of people's careers on hold. they think they can hold out. they do not have to move to another town to find a job. they do not have to settle for a job that is worse than it is. two years of unemployment benefits, you are giving people too much time. dagen: at these benefits you mentioned the 99 weeks, they have been shrinking. the longest benefits are now in new

and international affairs. you may recall one of the debates romney went after obama saying that after the libyan incident you left washington and you went to nevada. that was for a fund-raiser. that's what they're doing and if you think of that many fund raisers, here's an interesting statistic for you. back in 1984, ronald reagan was incumbent president of the united states. he was running for reelection. his campaign had to raise money for the party even though he was taking the federal grant as everyone has until this year in the general election. ronald reagan attended in that year four fund raisers. >> compared to -- >> 221, so we have a president -- this is not an attack on obama. we have a president who is to some extent, not doing their job because they have to be off fund-raising. the romney people felt the same way. romney was heard to be complaining in his campaign that he couldn't go out and meet voters and do what he thought he had to do as a can at because he had to spend all of his time in closed rooms of wealthy people to fund raise in order to get his ads up for his campaign. he

's athena jones has more now on the any dwoenany negotiation. randi, folks here in washington are wondering if this week will mark a turning point between republicans and democrats. after meeting with president obama before the thanksgiving holiday -- >> well, i want to welcome the conventional leadership here -- >> reporter: congressional leaders express optimism about reaching a deal to avoid $500 billion in tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect next year. >> we had a very constructive meeting with the president to talk about america's fiscal problem. >> we have the corner stones of being able to work something out. >> reporter: staffers have been working behind the scenes to find common ground. the big sticking points, how to bring in more tax revenue and reduce things like medicare. but it's not clear when the president and lawmakers will meet next. and even if some progress is made this week, a final deal could still be a long way off. >> we rarely see the hill and the white house make decisions ear early. they tend to do bet when they have a deadline. i would be pleasantl

for the president and a large part of the reason was entitlements, 'cause the below 30,000, 63% vote for barak obama, gave him 7 million in plurality and he won by 3 1/2 million popular votes. when i pointed that out. the "washington post" editorial board attacked me. my question to you as a psychiatrist now, the facts are on my side. i proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt using the facts. the exit polling, and all of the facts that we presented last night and tonight. why are they attacking me so vehemently? what is wrong with telling the american people what's going on? >> well, look, the fact is democrats did get their demographic, but that doesn't prove that they got the demographic because they're getting more stuff. i think traditionally democrats have been getting their demographic for a very long time. that skew in social class is to who gets the vote, democrat or republican, has been around for a long time. i think it's a plausible theory. i don't think it's a proven fact. and i don't think as some people have implied, that it's racist simply because the european state, which is the m

imagination does such a response exist. foos what he thinks should be done in washington, he says he supports president obama's proposal to eliminate the bush tax cuts for high income taxpayers. however, he says he prefers a cut off points somewhere above $250,000, maybe 500 thud or so. additionally, he says we need congress right new to enact a minimum tax on high incomes. buffett is suggests 20% between $1 million and $10 million and 30% on amounts above that and that's something he had laid out before. the real definition of the buffett rule. >> i always thought he was uncomfortable about the way the buffett rule was constructed and felt uncomfortable about saying something about it. because remember, he never really spoke openly about it, he would intimate that 250 might not be his number. >> the buffett rule is 30%. >> but then he's also talking about the 500. >> but that's not the buffett rule. but if you're doing tax reform, then you're not going up anyway. >> i think the main point he's saying is forget about the larger reforms p. maybe we'll get withere, maybe won't, but put that in

story on the front page of "the washington post" today, right here on the top right-hand side, obama launches p.r. effort on cliff the fiscal cliff, of course. putting pressure on congress, president will talk to small business owners. so here's what's going on. right. with this fiscal cliff looming the president has laid out -- very, very clear what he's talking about, what he wants to see. it is a $4 billion package of cuts to the deficit a combination of spending cuts and new revenue and about $2 trillion of that coming from getting rid of the bush tax cuts. at the same time while getting rid of the tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% of americans letting the tax cuts for 98% of americans continue because the middle class do need the help and the wealthiest people do not. so to get there of course, and by the way let's back up, right. the president put forth his plan on november 6th and mitt romney put forth his plan and the american people said no, we don't like that romney way of going which is to continue t

called himself the most reasonable man in washington, but in an editorial for the cincinnati enquirer today, boehner took the very unreasonable position of including obama care in debt negotiations. "the president's health care law adds a massive, expensive, unworkable government program at a time when our national debt already exceeds the size of our country's entire economy. we can't afford pinpoint and we can't afford to leave it intact. that's why i've been clear that the law has to stay on the table, as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation's massive debt challenge." mr. boehner, this is not what the election was all about. john boehner, if he is serious, will have to find out, but he certainly isn't very smart. the congressional budget office estimates, they show that the affordable care act will actually reduce the deficit. it doesn't make a lot of sense to get rid of a deficit reduction program, as part of a deficit reduction deal. the white house already rejected boehner's idea. obama care will not be part of debt negotiations. boehner is up to something here, don't y
